This is a great recipe! I cook for a group of about 8-10 friends each week and this week I did a brunch theme. This recipe was a hit. I used fresh chilies (diced small) instead of canned and served it with sour cream and fresh guacamole. The flavor is intense but not over powering. I would recommend using fresh corn whenever possible for both taste and texture. As summer fades and good quality tomatoes are not easy to find, I think I'll try using sun dried tomatoes, soaked to reconstitute. You've got to give this dish a try!

Delicious and easy -- a perfect combination for Sunday night supper! I used a frozen (store bought) pie crust and frozen corn. I also used fresh green chilies chopped and only 1 tomato. This was a great dish for a simple supper that everyone enjoyed. Thanks for sharing!

4 stars because I deviated from the recipe, 10 stars for ease and taste!!! I left out the chilies and layered the cheese & corn mixture with sliced tomatoes, beginning and ending with cheese & corn (sort of a glorified quiche). I thought it needed a sprinkle of salt. This is DEFINITELY going in my file!!! SOOO GOOD!!!
